Brooklyn Heights church plans dinner to benefit renovation



If you're tired of being cooped up indoors, why not get out, enjoy dinner and entertainment and get caught up with the neighborhood news?

The roast beef dinner, sponsored by Brooklyn Heights United Methodist Church, which was scheduled for Feb. 12 and postponed because of the weather, has been rescheduled for Saturday.

Dinner, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., will include sliced beef, potatoes and gravy, green beans, corn, spiced apples, bread, beverage and dessert.

Live entertainment, with a piano sing-along, choral groups and instrumentals, will be presented during dinner.

Tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for children ages 6-12. Children ages 5 and under eat for free. Proceeds will benefit local church renovations and debt reductions at Camp Harmison, a church camp in West Virginia.

The church is at 110 Townsend Ave. For information or tickets, call 789-3688.

Also, the church will conduct special prayer services from 7 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, during the season of Lent.
